Since about 6th grade I have always kept a pair of Vans red and white classic slip-ons in my shoe arsenal. I also have a few pairs of classic lace-ups and occasionally pine for a pair their flats, but I haven’t indulged in the shoes of my youth for many years now. That all may change…I found these beauties, called the Sophie, on Need Supply Co. and I’m as obsessed as my thirteen year-old self was with the slip-ons. They’re quite pretty and made by Vans…my vintage shoe-wearing feet can only dream about that type of comfort in a flat. I also have a thing for saddle shoes, they’re just so charming.



One of my most favorite people in the whole world, Miss Emma, used to also be my roommate. We had wondrous times filled with homemade soup, wine and late night runs to the food bazaar. Miss Emma has since moved to Austin, TX and I have moved from a hovel on the border of Williamsburg/Bushwick/Bed-Sty to Greenpoint, but scattered around my apartment are some mementos from our old place-one of which are the infamous onion goggles. Miss Emma’s mother sent her ‘homemade soup in a box.’ Basically recipes, a giant soup pot and ladle, and of course, the onion goggles. Emma wore them a few times, but I took quite a shine to them. I just have really sensitive eyes. I can’t make it through a Disney movie without crying and a fresh onion will have me going for at least 20 minutes. To me these goggles are priceless, without them I’d be in the kitchen wearing swim goggles and we all know the kind of rubber suction marks those leave.

For more love of the onion goggles see my Writing.Muchly.
